Yesterday we went to Mikumi National Park, about 1.5 hours from where we're staying in Morogoro. We left the hotel in darkness around 5:15 AM (admittedly a difficult job for some) in order to best view the animals in their natural habitat. And what animals we saw! I know the lion ranks high on everyone's checklist of "must see" animals while in Africa but I thought the lone baby warthog was truly amazing. Maybe Munish "Mr. National Geographic" Kaushik will post his photos some of these fantastic creatures on our blog. We were just feet from the lionness and thankfully, it was too hot for her to move. But the experience of being so close to these magnificent beasts was wonderful.
